I don't know that I've ever written about my thoughts on the purpose and heart of Humble Handmaid.
When it comes down to it, I want Humble Handmaid to do four things:
1. Give glory to God
2. Bless and encourage my readers by speaking truth in honesty and humility
3. Chronicle my family's life and adventures (because God knows things haven't been boring since I said "I do"!!!)
3. Give my family the gift of seeing what my "yes" to God's plan for my life has looked like; and seeing how God has used them to bless me, inspire me, challenge me, delight me, and ultimately make me into a better person.
Also, for those of you who don't know the little story behind Gabriel's name (and Humble Handmaid's name!), here's an old blog post that explains why God's fingerprints are all over both.
"And Mary said, 'Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord, let it be to me according to your word'..." -Luke 1:38
